    I’m embarrassed to say that I read these and was completely entertained! Imagine a story that is part Hunger Games and part Bachelor...it’s the best way to describe this young adult series. If you are looking for deep, thought provoking storylines, you will be in for a disappointment, yet I really enjoyed it!

I admit, I have never watched a second of 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette', but I found myself immersed in the world of love-based contests all the same! Kiera Cass does a very nice job sprinkling in underlying storylines that wouldn't be necessarily classified as romantic either. The presence of political fantasy and dystopian vibes definitely made the series much more than 'just a love story'. While I admit I liked the first three novels more, the last novel still had a satisfying ending and a lead-up that kept me interested enough to continue. This series provided me with a lovely break from reading university-level texts, and I would definitely recommend it as enough of a light-hearted read to provoke one's interest and elevate one's stress. 4.2 Stars

However, as fun as these books were to read with how involved I got in them, I am not a fan of the pace this series went at. This review contains spoilers so be warned. I honestly wish these books were paced better because we see the entire Selection but we are also shown very few pieces of background to the history of the world these characters live in. It seemed like the author wanted to tell a story about how women are narrowed down to a single pick for the rising prince to take as his wife and the new Queen. But, on top of that, there are a few glimpses of action happening outside of the palace in which a rebel society wants to overthrow the monarchy. Those glimpses happened for maybe 8 chapters TOTAL during the first 3 books (keep in mind that a majority of the chapters are quite short). 300 - 350 pages in each book and we only get to hear about them in about 8 chapters? Why include this at all if you're not going to expand on it more? To me it seemed unnecessary since it left me with so many questions like, "how long have these rebels had problems with the kingdom," "when did the Northern rebels come about and were they only organized to fight the Southern rebels," "if these rebels are so set on overthrowing the kingdom then why have we seen them so little?" I had more questions but, unfortunately, they will never be answered in this series. I was happy when the main character, America, finds the history books and sees how the world was "before World War 4" but that's pretty much the only depth of history we are given. The rest we are just expected to accept as a reader and that's not okay with me without giving me reasons why. Another issue I had with the books was the third, "The One." It ends in the poorest direction it could have in my opinion. Let me give a brief background first. In the second book, "The Elite", you learn about the true motive behind the King's actions very late into the book. He detests America because he believes she is "unfit to rule" and openly tells her how he feels about her being in the Selection. NICE! An antagonist within the home! I'm fine with this because it allows for development between the family members while also questioning how should the nation be run. But then in the third book after seeing the story building on the views of the King and America and their differences, the author just kills the King off. Oh, and the Queen is dead too after America starts to see her as a mother figure. Their deaths happen IMMEDIATELY before America and Maxon's brief engagement in a sudden inside attack by the Southern rebels. Why not build on the conflicting views of the King and the rising Queen America once she becomes the princess?? It would have been a great learning experience for both America and Maxon as they prepared to later take the throne as the new King and Queen of Illia. But, no, let's not do that. Let's just kill them off completely to cut the story short and skip to Maxon's and America's wedding because THAT'S the ending readers want, right?? No, not this one! On a positive note, a great thing the drawn out Selection story did was create character development. We were able to better understand the reasons behind the girls' actions and helped us enjoy them more. Personally, it let me get attached to the girls just before ripping them away due to an elimination and it got me that much more interested in the book. This was a great way to distract the readers of the attacks by the Southern rebels so many probably didn't question why there wasn't much involving the rebels if they were such a threat to the kingdom (didn't distract me enough to forget though). The story allowed us to fall in love with some and get annoyed by others like a good book should do anyways. The reader would jump for joy or cry into the pages or even slam the book shut in frustration and leave it on a table for a few hours. That was something this book did well at: pulling the reader in.

    I read this entire series within the course of 10 days. Yep, all 5 books in ten days. This was probably the best series I have ever read. It always had action and drama. The romance between Maxon and American is so amazing. It was always so hard for me to put down the books. The last 2 books are amazing as well, but definitely not as good as the first 3. It was a lot like “The Bachelor” but it wasn’t like the show. It seems to be based around the idea, but it’s SO MUCH BETTER. This was the best I read this entire series within the course of 10 days.

The reason for the stretch was because I wasn't sure if I should just attempt to review the series as a whole or each individual book. The problem was that I devoured all five books; start to finish. I lost sleep to this series and it has been quite a time since I felt so absorbed into a world. The original trilogy follows America Singer, who living in a dystopian and futuristic world, where a competition is held among thirty-five girls who attempt to win over Prince Maxon. Unfortunately, America has no desire for this glam future as a One, or a Princess. She is content dreaming of a future with her sevret love, Aspen, even if means a lifetime of struggle and hardship. I initially had a hard time in the beginning of this book. Aspen had lines that bothered me to the core and I really did not see the reason why America was even okay with being with him. As the book progresses and the readers meet Maxon, it just felt so cliche. Everything was so predictable and planned that I struggled with wanting to continue. But I was still curious, more so at first to see why the obsession with this series. I am glad that I stuck with it though. Although some predictability remained, especially when the other books in the series spoil it for you, Cass started throwing some plot twists and more world involvement in the story line that definitely sucked me back in. I mean, I'll admit, it was still cliche but that didn't change the fact that I had that grin on my face reading some of these exchanges. The final duology follows Eadlyn Schreave. The "caste system" has been removed and under the new King and Queen they are attempting to fix pieces of their society. Unfortunately it is not going smoothly so America and Maxon ask their daughter to hold a Selection to help calm the people. I struggled much more with this duology and felt that I raced through the two books just so that I could say that I finished them. America and Maxon come off weird and wrong; they are completely different people and act like they are in their 70s as opposed to their 30s. Eadlyn was a brat through and through. Even with her inner monologue she continued to maintain this trait. I skimmed through those parts and slowed down when other characters were involved but still I pushed on. Of course, it is hinted that she should have gone through some character development but there was no growth at all by the end of the books. Sometimes you just need a light, romantic comedy in book form; and the original trilogy is it. I would recommend them for some cliche, love story. But I would not push to read the final two books.

    Very impressed with the storytelling in these books. While it took me a bit to get into them (I think halfway through the second was when I really became engaged), having finished the series there are a couple things that stand out: the way the story is woven is fantastic; I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen, that things would go stereotypically or would end unsurprisingly, but then everything flipped on its head all of a sudden. I would then think the ending was going one way, until Very impressed with the storytelling in these books.

I would then think the ending was going one way, until, with 5 pages left, it would flip again, making the ending all the more impactful because of the way it almost-but-didn't end. It made those closing moments so much more captivating and meaningful. I also love how Cass drops hints at her faith and weaves those beliefs and values into the world and characters without being preachy or awkward--that's a beautiful (somewhat rare) skill, and it was awesome to be able to read books that weren't explicitly Christian but still embody the values I hold close. Anyways, highly recommend these. They were a fun read with some surprising twists and turns! *Read these two years ago and never posted the review, so here it is :)

Also, the whole concept of her getting coronated early was really odd to me. Maxon was adorable as always and such a good husband to America, I really wished we got more Maxerica content in these books.

    Oh man, that series was quite the ride. I have been taking it upon myself to read all of the super hyped up series as of late. It’s interesting to analyze what makes them so viral. This one was definitely addicting. I averaged one book every 1 to 2 days. I found the final two books in the series to be the most enthralling, but with an ending that just fell completely flat after such a wild ride of five (well, six) books. All in all, I highly recommend it and really do think it is worth reading. O Oh man, that series was quite the ride.

    I got this book series for Christmas and was hesitant to read it. I went on a trip with my family and brought these books along. When I started I couldn't put it down. I read the whole series within a couple of days, not more than one week. I then told my best friend she asked if she could read it. When she did she loved it as well. After she read all the books her mom, sister, my mom, and sister are also reading the series. Kiera Cass is a great author and I can't wait to read more of her work.

    I look back very fondly at this series. Sure it made me crazy at times, but what book doesn’t? I love America and Maxons’ relationship. It is based on friendship and they have immaculate banter in the first book. We kinda lose that over the other books, but it never fully goes away.

The first three are written beautifully and everything is so detailed and can be imagined easily.

    The first 3 are 5 stars! The last two were not awful. But they weren't as good as the first three either. The last two seemed rushed. There wasn't enough time to build up the relationship at the end. I ended it feeling disappointed. It seemed like the author wasn't as invested in the story of the last two books and I think it could have been way better. The first 3 are 5 stars! The last two were not awful.

    Light and entertaining chick lit. First book is the best. This parades as a five-book series that is really a trilogy and a ... duology? stuck together with some glitter duct tape (good call marketing team). Theme: Hunger Games meets the Bachelor, and then Bachelorette.

    Heavy in romance with a hint of rebellion. The first three are very good but not so much of a fan as the final 2, which follow a different character. A guilty pleasure and convincing characters who are not perfect. Well crafted.

    Really liked the first 3 books, last 2 were pretty good too. Part Bachelor part Hunger Games. Enjoyed this light, YA series. I listened to .5 and 2.5 books, I wasn’t impressed. It is repetitive about everything that happened from the prince’s/ guard’s perspective.

    A great summer read that is different than the typical 'hallmark' rom-com type books. Light hearted, little bit of drama, interesting characters that develop over the course of the series. Not sure if this was ever made into a mini-series, but it would work there too. A great summer read that is different than the typical 'hallmark' rom-com type books.

    The first three books in the series were amazing. The plot was well written and the characters were easily fallen in love with. The last two weren't as great. The protagonist wasn't that likable and it felt like it took away from the first 3 books. The first three books in the series were amazing.

    Teen drama at its finest. This series felt like The Bachelor meets the Hunger Games. But there wasn’t much depth to it. Really not a bad series for a teen! The romance is clean, nothing more than kissing.
